Spanline Canberra - Especially Scott have been so amazing from the very beginning of installing my sunroom, I had and still have so many questions and he is always so willing to answer them and cross check everything so he has the right answer for me. He goes above and beyond answering my email after hours and on weekends which I think is just such amazing service . I can’t thank Scott and his team enough and I can’t wait for my sunroom to be finished in a couple of months
Well done Josh. Very professional job. We would definitely use Spanline again. Very happy with your work
I have referred Spanline Australia for many of my Clients in Sydney, who are in need of a quality crafted carport, patio or alfresco area, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback. From start to finish, their team was professional, efficient, and highly skilled. The quality of their workmanship exceeded my expectations, and the final result truly enhances the appearance and functionality of my client’s homes. I highly recommend Spanline to anyone in need of outdoor living or improved home utility. They deliver top-notch service and outstanding results.

Extremely happy with completed roof we had Spanline Port Stephens erect over our external deck area. Their professionalism and attention to detail throughout our product selection / build process was amazing and we have received a great deal of positive feedback from our family and friends about the quality of the product and workmanship. Many thanks to Steve and Simone.
We have used Spanline for two renovations recently and couldn't be happier with the process, from Seb Godfrey coming out to measure and quote, to material selection and the build process.Where possible they sought to re-use existing materials and structures, offering different materials and options to really try and meet our budget and still get an amazing result.The workmanship is amazing and especially in the instance of our back deck it just linked the house and our yard together in a way our previous mod-wood deck (which was only two years old and had collapsed) simply could not.I cannot recommend Spanline highly enough. The initial quote may seem expensive but I can't reiterate the work quality, the dedication of the staff and the end product is absolutely worth it and I wish I had done it in the first place. I'm looking forward to working with them again in future for other renovations I'm planning.

From the initial contact with Chris and Mel, all dealings with Spanline people were positive and friendly. The team organised all necessities from Council approval, through the engineer drawing up the plans via an onsite visit, to the delivery and construction of the carport.I initially thought the timeframe was excessive but they moved my construction forward when there was a cancellation. Rain slowed things down but the carport was erected within 3 workable days (allowing for the curing of the concrete).Neighbours have remarked positively on the look of the carport and that it has enhanced the front of the house.Once the carport was erected, a local plumber completed the work by connecting the carport roofing to the required overflow pipes.In summary, a great piece of work, organised by a very friendly and professional organisation.

Tips on how to keep costs down without sacrificing quality or functionality?

  1. We recommend obtaining multiple bids for your project. This will allow you to compare prices and find an option that most suits your budget.
  2. Learn all you can about materials. Your Spanline Design Advisor can help you understand the difference between materials in terms of longevity, costs and quality. Opting for low-cost materials may result in higher expenses over time.
  3. Choose a simple design. A simple design is often more affordable than an elaborate one. When you’re planning your custom home addition, keep this in mind and choose a design that is both stylish and practical. Start by reviewing our Recent Projects.
  4. Avoid unnecessary features. This will help to keep costs down without sacrificing quality.
  5. Consider the functionality of the materials and the overall design. Insulated panels or tinted windows can help with temperature regulation within the space. Consider designing your new addition to take advantage of the flow of air and direction of the sun. This can reduce the need for additional heating or cooling elements in your new area.
  6. Shop Around for Financing It’s crucial to compare offers from different lenders to find the most affordable interest rates and terms.

Spanline’s extensions, patios, and pergolas are made from high-quality materials and backed by up to 15 years warranty.* That’s worth considering when it comes time to add on to your home.

Spanline’s Expert Insights:

  • What is the purpose: Before beginning, it is important to determine the purpose of the addition. Consider if it is for extra living space, an outdoor gym or outdoor dining and BBQ area. This will help determine the size and layout of your home addition ideas. Consult with a Spanline Design Advisor to help determine the best design and layout for your specific needs
  • Obtain necessary permits: Adding onto a home typically requires obtaining permits from your local government. This ensures that the room addition meets building codes and regulations and that it is safe and structurally sound. Your Spanline team can assist you with navigating the permit process and ensuring that all requirements are met.
  • Hire a reputable contractor: It is important to hire a reputable contractor with experience in conventional additions and custom additions. Check their credentials and references, and make sure they are licensed and insured. Spanline Home Additions has been an industry leader in the home improvement sector for over 38 years, consistently delivering innovative and high-quality solutions for Australian homeowners. All Spanline builders are fully licensed and committed to continuous professional development and have hands-on experience, ensuring quality and safety in all of our home improvement projects.
  • Set a budget: Home additions require careful planning, so it is important to set a budget and stick to it. This will help ensure that you know exactly how the project will progress and what the finished project will look like.
  • Consider the design and aesthetics: A home addition should blend seamlessly with the existing home and complement its design and aesthetics. This can be achieved through careful planning and attention to detail. We are experts in creating custom home additions that enhance the overall look and feel of your home.
  • Plan for future needs: When planning your custom home addition, it’s important to consider the long-term future of your family. Will there be more children or grandchildren in the future? What about the needs of ageing parents or relatives? It’s essential to ensure that the addition is not only stylish but also functional and practical for years to come.
  • Choose materials wisely: Choosing the right materials for the addition can impact its longevity and durability. Consider factors such as weather resistance, maintenance requirements, and insulation.
  • Think about lighting and ventilation: Adequate lighting and ventilation are essential for a comfortable and healthy living space. Including these elements in the design of the addition can enhance its functionality and comfort. Consult with a Spanline Design Advisor to ensure that your addition is designed with optimal natural light and ventilation.
  • Factor in landscaping and furnishing: Landscaping and furnishings can enhance the overall look and feel of the addition, as well as provide privacy and shade.
  • Be patient: Home additions can be complex and time-consuming projects. Be patient and allow for unexpected delays or challenges that may arise during the construction process.
